Schleicher ASK 13

Czech Master Resin CMR72-G043 - 1/72 Resin

The ASK 13 is a (West) German two-seat glider designed by Rudolf Kaiser in 1965. It was evolved as a continued development of the preceding Ka 2 and Schleicher Ka 7 trainers using a mixture of materials including metal, wood and glass-fibre.

Its prototype first flew in July 1966 and by January 1978 a total of around 700 ASK 13s had been built by Alexander Schleicher GmbH. Being superb training glider because of its stall and spin characteristics, the ASK 13s were and still are widely used for ab-initio training of glider pilots not only in Europe, but also in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Japan.
